that the united states government had nothing to do with this video, and i believe its message must be rejected by all who respect our common humanity. it is an insult not only to muslims but to america as well, for as the city outside these walls makes clear, we are a country that's welcomed people of every race and every faith. we are home to muslims who worship across our country. we not only respect the freedom of religion, we have laws that protect individuals from being harmed because of how they look or what they believe. >> our chief white house correspondent jessica yellin is live at the united nations. she joins us now. listening to that speech, it began with a mention of chris stevens, it ended with a mention of chris stevens and it's not lost on anyone watching that the president has two major audiences. he's got an international audience clearly, and he's got a domestic audience during this election. was he able to navigate appropriately between the two with the remarks he actually chose? >> reporter: well, it will depend who you ask, ashleigh, and i think that he within his parame
